When I decided to try out 6mm micro armour I bought several sets of tanks just to paint as a test. These included the Tiger I's I featured here a while back. But buying them on their own just didn't seem right. They needed an opponent, even if this was just a painting test. I hadn't decided at that point that I wanted to play a North Africa campaign otherwise I could have bought the first elements of my forces there and them. Instead I bought a couple of packs of T34/85's purely because I like this tank and because... oh who am I kidding?!? This is just a classic example of Shiney-bloody-itus getting the better of me at a show!
I couldn't leave them unpainted so here is a totally historically inaccurate paint job of three T34/85's in the Libyan Desert!
